President Joe Biden was asked Monday whether he or another future president should consider pardoning Donald Trump, who may face federal indictments as part of the classified documents investigation.
Biden didn’t offer a huge response, but at the same time managed to speak volumes.
“Did you see Ron DeSantis say he would pardon Trump if he became president?” Doocy asked. “What do you think of the idea of Presidents pardoning Trump?”
Biden laughed, waved, and walked away.
“See you,” he said over his shoulder. “Great question.”
DeSantis, the Florida governor and a Trump rival for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, said last week he would consider “every instance of disadvantage” as he considers pardons on “day one” of his presidency.
“I’m going to have people get together and look at all these cases… people [who] are victims of gun attacks or political targets and we will be aggressive in issuing pardons,” he said when asked about the possibility of a pardon for the former president and the Jan. 6 rioters who had tried to get the confirmation of the to block election 2020.
